Our Next Club Outing – Saturday 15 October

An afternoon exploring Kensington Gardens and Holland Park. We will meet at 1:30pm at the Albert Memorial in Kensington Gardens (opposite the Albert Hall) for an autumnal stroll around Kensington Gardens and Holland Park. There are art galleries gardens, lakes and sculptures in Kensington Gardens, with plenty of cafes and toilets. I also hope we can get to see the Kyoto Garden in nearby Holland Park. Hopefully we will have beautiful weather but if not we can divert to the V&A, Science Museum or Natural History Museum.


The Outings Committee is organising a long weekend visit to Northumberland and the Farne Islands from Friday 16 to Tuesday 20 June next year.
